"I couldn't even access the TC bridge riding through Moore Park from Devonshire st the other day. Seems blocked off from that direction. Was funnelled to the lights instead."

"Not a bad idea, it's w hat the Dutch do to make overbridge ramps for cyclists much easier to climb. The trench doesn't have to be too deep, just lowered a a metre or two."

"No.  Both the boys and the girls schools front onto Anzac Parade.  The bridge will land somewhere close to the historic circular bear-pit structure."

"Put the cars in a trench and have the crossing at land level.  Oh hang on, that would mean the budget couldn't be described as pedestrian"

"yeah, it was no doubt the old "security in tunnel" worry, or the Phys Ed teachers thought it would be good for strength conditioning, which could be true.  Will they all just walk down to Cleveland St and cross there?"

"An underpass carrying EVERYTHING was proposed, thru Alex Greenwich, MP, in early 2014. It was ignored by TfNSW / RMS.  The details are recorded for posterity in Transit Australia Magazine dated July 2014. On the subject of the bridge at the…"

"I guess we shouldn't lobby for their retention, they will only remove them quicker. The ideal solution would have been to include an underpass for cyclists in the LR tunnel under Anzac Pde, now being excavated. That's what the Dutch do as…"

"Yep, we saw a lot more people crossing there than the bridge on match day last Saturday. How nice would the area be if they could chop out a lane or two of cars?"

"And the bridge is presented as pedestrian budget Most peds would rather wait for the pedestrian light rather than climb up onto a bridge BTW I noticed that the trams are not using the existing bus lanes, they have reduced the park lane to get the…"

Colin replied to JimmyH's discussion The high cost of the useless Moore Park cycle bridge
"Exactly. So much of the design is tiptoes around Anzac Pde and ensures that "no car driver shall be inconvenienced". The chopping down of the trees is another example - those trees could have been saved by having the tram use the existing…"
